A Note from Luke Kujacznski, Urban Alliance Executive Director

“Each year I am in awe with what can be accomplished through love, and this year is no exception. The work that was accomplished by this community makes me incredibly proud and hopeful. There were significant breakthroughs, there were challenges, but best of all, hope gained a foothold. Hope that together Kalamazoo can be a place where everyone can be successful, hope that systems are changing, and hope that love will prevail. As we wrap up 2018, and look forward to 2019, I see a lot of work to be done. However, we are not alone. The alliance of individuals working together is moving beyond an organization and into a movement seeking love and justice. Together we will create a community where every individual is valued.”
